Michael David Flood

For those of you who may not know, my brother, Mike Flood, had a bad accident while climbing at Stoney Point, Chatsworth, CA.  Mike is a highly accomplished rock climber with more than  45 years of experience.  On June 14, 2020, Mike was climbing a route called "Potholes", a route he had climbed hundreds of times before, when something went wrong and he took a free fall of about 40'.  He landed on rocks and boulders, his body was very badly broken, and he had to be air lifted to a local hospital.

Mike must have lost his wallet in the fall because he had no ID on him and, when he arrived at the ER, the hospital admitted him as a "John Doe".  It's a long story, how the hospital was finally able to reach me but they called me to ask if I could identify Mike over the phone.  Once I identified him, the hospital told me the extent of his injuries and she explained how critical he was.

Mike is a miracle!!!  He has lived through his fall, multiple, multiple surgeries, multiple, multiple fractures, including a broken neck, the removal of 1/2 of his colon, and a portion of his intestines, to necrosis, he's on dialysis, on a ventilator, has a colostomy, has had multiple blood transfusions, and too much more to mention.  For 5 of his 6 1/2 weeks in the ICU, he was unconscious.  Slowly, and I mean slowly, but surely, he's coming around.  He has setbacks but, overall, he's becoming stronger.  He's awake and basically breathing on his own.  He's much more alert than he had been previously and his body is slowly healing.  It's still going to be a long wait for him to be discharged from the hospital, at which time, he'll be transferred to a rehab facility.

Mike will not be ready to return home for months.  In order to help Mike, I have set up this GoFundMe so that Mike can pay bills and other household expenses.  I am asking you to please consider donating to his fund.  I realize, with COVID-19, times are tough but, if you could spare $5.00, that would be great!!  Every dollar counts, so please donate.

ALL proceeds will go to Michael's bills and expenses.

I want to thank all of you who have contributed, or will contribute, to Mike's GoFundMe.  Mike and I are blessed with amazing friends and family members.  I am grateful for the outpouring of love and support, prayers, and healing thoughts.  I thank you so much!!!

Oh...And please share, share, share!!!
